Singapore is a thriving cosmopolitan country with four million people of various ethnic communities and cultures, mainly Chinese, Malay, Indian and other smaller communities. Due to its geographical location and being an island, Singapore's climate is warm with uniform daily temperatures, abundant rainfall, and high humidity. Showers are usually sudden and heavy but also brief and refreshing. Singapore boasts of its green and clean 'Garden City' among the modern cities. Strategically and centrally located at the south of the Malay archipelago, Singapore is easily accessible by air to many Southeast Asian Nations.
Did you know that Singapore is ranked as the #3 "Student City" in the world, above Boston?
Nanyang Business School at Nanyang Technological University
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is highly regarded as one of the world's best universities. Its residential campus, located in the south-western part of Singapore, was originally developed to educate engineers for Singapore. NTU is rapidly expanding to become one of the most reputable, diversified universities in the world.
